The Nutrition Services team provides a variety of nutrition services to the Oneida Nation.
Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) provide Medical Nutrition Therapy to help improve a variety of conditions. No matter your age or stage of life, we offer diet counseling to help you reach your health and diet related goals.
If you have a nutrition concern, ask your medical provider at the health center for a referral to speak with one of our RDN staff.
Our consultant RDN provides nutrition education and menu guidance to the Oneida Nation School System, Head Start, and childcare centers. Age-appropriate lessons help expose children and families to new foods and healthy habits.
Breastfeeding can have many benefits for both mom and baby. Our staff are available to help provide guidance and reassurance to breastfeeding moms to help them reach their goals. Visit the Breastfeeding page for more information on services and facts about breastfeeding.
